A sign is seen at a police check point near the main market following recent violent clashes in Nigeria's central city of Jos February 15, 2011. More than 200 people have been killed in sectarian violence in and around Jos since a series of bombs shattered Christmas Eve celebrations almost two months ago. The bloodletting is not rooted in religious fervour, but in rivalry between mostly Christian ethnic groups who can trace their ancestry in the region back several generations -- known as indigenes -- and settlers from the Muslim north.

More than 200 people have been killed in sectarian violence in and around Jos since a series of bombs shattered Christmas Eve celebrations almost two months ago. The economy of Plateau state, of which Jos is the capital, had relied on the fruit and vegetable it supplies to cities across Africa's most populous nation, and on tourism, after mining and manufacturing firms scaled down or moved away. Rivalry for scant economic opportunities combined with local government policies that have actively discriminated against non-indigenes have fuelled divisions. Picture taken February 15, 2011.
